The 2019 Ford Ranger, which went on sale in January, now features a new Black Appearance Package that helps buyers further customize the midsize pickup.
More than two-thirds of Ranger pickups are leaving showrooms optioned with either the Sport Appearance Package that adds unique wheels and Magnetic Gray-painted accents, or the Chrome Appearance Package with bright chrome wheels and chrome body accents.
The Black Appearance Package gives Ranger customers a bold and stylish new option, according to Ford.
"Like the rest of their gear, Ranger customers are choosing the option that best fits their adventures," said Todd Eckert, Ford's truck group marketing manager. "Having the right gear matters and so does the right look. The Black Appearance Package adds aggressive style to the adventures our customers embark on."
Available with any Ranger body color, the Black Appearance Package’s aggressive look will help the truck stand out where it goes. Its standard features include:
- Black-painted grille
- Body-color bumpers
- High-gloss black-painted 18-inch aluminum wheels with black center caps
- Black running boards
- Black spray-in bed liner
- Black fender vent surround
- Black mirrors
- Black sill plate
- Black bash plate on FX4 off-road package
- Black lower valance
The Ranger Black Appearance Package is available as an option for $1,995 (excluding taxes) and can be ordered at dealers now, with deliveries targeted to begin in early summer.
Ranger is powered by a Ford-built 2.3L EcoBoost engine and 10-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, the center stack includes an 8-inch touch screen for the available SYNC 3 system, while the instrument cluster features productivity screens for real-time vehicle and audio information plus available navigation.
Ranger incorporates advanced passenger convenience and connectivity features, as well as smart driver-assist technologies including standard automatic emergency braking. Ford CoPilot360 technologies such as a lane-keeping system and blind spot alert with trailer coverage are standard on XLT and Lariat trim levels. Additional driver-assist technologies including adaptive cruise control and forward and reverse sensing systems are available on both XLT and Lariat.
